The Over/Under (O/U) for the game opened at 225 points with Golden State set as a 5-point favorite.

However, Golden Stat has had to make due playing without its superstar the past couple games due to an ankle injury.

The Minnesota Timberwolves stopped their National Basketball Association skid in dramatic style on Sunday, beating the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, 109-103, in Minneapolis. Including the game against the Lakers, the Warriors have four games prior to March 20, meaning Curry may end up missing six games. All of these videos can be found on the Warriors Report on YouTube. Golden State has lost both games without him and trail the Rockets for the top seed in the conference.

More importantly, fans should be reminded that Golden State is still Curry's team.

Anthony Davis returned from a one-game absence caused by a sprained ankle to play on his 25th birthday and lead New Orleans with 25 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 10 blocks.

The four-time NBA All-Star has made a huge difference in his first season in Minnesota, as the Timberwolves have already won seven more games than previous year.

Over the past five years, as he averaged 78.8 games, Curry hushed doubts about those balky ankles.
